Are you out of your go-to repellent and you don’t want to run to the store? You might have the answer right in your kitchen. If you have some whole cloves and a lime you can make a decent homemade mosquito repellent in a couple of minutes.
1.) Cut the limes in half (we lost one slice to our daugher)
2.) Put the clove stems straight into the flesh of the fruit. (We put two per wedge) You can get these in the spice aisle at the grocery store.
3.) Place the limes on a plate and take with you outside.
4.) If you notice those pesky mosquitoes starting to get closer to you just squeeze the lime release some juices over the cloves.
Total Time to Make: Less than 5 minutes.
